9781906479107: Energy Management in Plastics Processing, Second Edition: Strategies, Targets, Techniques, and Tools

This is a practical workbook providing a structured approach to reducing energy consumption in all the major plastics shaping processes (moulding, extrusion, forming) as well as elsewhere in the plant (e.g. in factory services and non-manufacturing areas). The approach throughout the book is to reduce the kWh/kg of materials processed, resulting in permanent reductions in consumption and costs. The book also addresses essential issues such as energy benchmarking and site surveys, understanding energy supplies and bills and measuring and managing energy usage. Every topic is covered in a single 2-page spread, providing the reader with a manageable explanation, clear actions and key tips for success. The second edition has been considerably expanded as this subject has risen up the management agenda for plastics companies around the globe, and the new final chapter provides a useful introduction to carbon footprinting.
